Mojo Café

Mojo Café is nestled under and owned by the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers. It sits on Dong Khoi and has an impressive frontage that can be opened fully when weather permits.

The Sheraton Hotel in turn is managed by the Starwood Hotels & Resorts who have a portfolio of 1300 hotels around the world. They are able to draw on their vast resources and experience to present a menu here that is as one would expect, world class. Mojo Café presents a superb addition to the Ho Chi Minh City dining scene.

Ambience

The concept is clever. They open from very early morning until late at night and therefore need a different ambience and menu for each part of the day. In the morning it’s the ideal place to drop in for a coffee and a croissant, whilst taking in the morning papers. By day time the menu becomes more that of a bistro café and people come to enjoy a lunch of maybe a sandwich and one of the signature smoothies, for which Mojo is fast becoming recognised. In the evening this is a classy restaurant offering superb food from Asia and beyond. The menu has a strong Korean influence and is both authentic and delicious. They also specialise in cakes to go, so for that special occasion in your life, this is the place to contact.

Mojo Café targets Saigon professionals and whilst 20% of the trade is from hotel customers, it is the local demographic that is making up the bulk of their trade. Many Vietnamese celebrities drop in here, it is one of the venues in town in which to see and be seen. The menu changes about every 6 months in order to keep it fresh and they have monthly specials. October was based around the German Oktoberfest activities and November is “Modern Thai”.

Service

As you would expect the staff is well trained and up to the standards one would expect from a 5 star hotel. They are polite and helpful without being overbearing.

Food & Drink

And what of the food, well I have to report that it is spectacular. Most of the ingredients are imported from France and other countries. The marvelous chocolate comes from Belgium as you would expect. We tried three of the main course offerings.

Steak Sandwich (VND330,000++) This comes with a choice of cheddar or Blue cheese. I had it with the cheddar and the blend of quality beef, delicious bacon and melted cheese on super fresh French bread was mouth-watering. It was well presented and perfectly cooked.

Korean Style Beef Ribs (VND409,000++) These were exceptional. The presentation immediately prepares one for the delights that are to follow upon tasting. The beef was so subtly flavored with sesame oil and spices, it comes with fabulous Kimchi as one would hope, a clear soup, some delicious beans and rice. This was truly wonderful.

Mojo own noodle soup. (VND260,000++) Don’t be fooled, this is a complete meal in itself. It is packed with wholesome vegetables, noodles, wontons, Choy Sum, Chilli Satay and seafood. It’s a delicious tasty soup, just spiced enough to give it a slight edge without overpowering any of the many flavours.

We rounded off with delicious Tiramisu and the best blueberry cheesecake imaginable. This was heaven on a plate. A good strong double shot of superb Espresso (VND 100,000++) and the meal concluded. This is an amazing addition to the Ho Chi Minh café list.

What could be Improved

It genuinely is difficult to think of anything without sounding churlish. This really is an exceptional cafe in the best part of town. I suppose they could look at the pricing policy, though I expect it has to pay for itself as part of the Sheraton Saigon. That is though the only gripe I can think of. It wouldn’t put me off, but maybe some.

What People Say

TripAdvisor reviews are for the main part completely positive, which doesn’t surprise me. A few criticized the pricing policies of the cafe, though I guess that as it is part of the Sheraton, you have to pay for what you get. Dong Khoi is the most expensive part of town and that too comes at a premium.
